WASHINGTON, D.C. – Center for Responsible Lending Executive Vice President Nikitra Bailey released the following statement today on the passing of U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform:

We are saddened by the passing of Chairman Elijah Cummings. He was a steadfast leader who served his community and country with passion and conviction. For consumers, he was the voice who championed reforms to protect families from abusive payday lenders, predatory for-profit colleges, and housing discrimination. His legacy is a shining example of what public service ought to be—a fighter for truth, justice, and fairness. The Center for Responsible Lending offers its collective comfort to his wife Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings and their family.
